On the road again...

So I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted. I guess I've been pre-occupied with various family happenings, some good and some very challenging. I don't have time to write about everything now, but I'll write more, hopefully next week.

I'll be leaving on Saturday to fly back to my hometown, Vermilion, Ohio for just a few days to try to help my brother find a new place to live...very long story. My sisters, Sharon and Diane are going too. I'm not expecting a really "fun" trip, (again - long story) but we'll make the best of it.

I am excited about the fact that we get to stay at our aunt and uncle's cottage in Mitiwanga. I'll post pics when I get back. It's an amazying old 2-story cottage with wood floors and a screened in front porch just a hundred yards or so from the beach at Lake Erie. I have wonderful memories of Easter egg hunts and summer days spent eating watermelon, playing and connecting with our huge extended family there.

And we'll have to be sure and have some Lake Erie Perch, breaded and deep fried...mmmm good!

This is a cool link that I just came across with some old postcards from around Vermilion. The photo above is from that site. It's the Vermilion-on-the-Lake Clubhouse right down the street from where I lived, where I learned to swim, and took ballet lessons, had holiday parties, and accepted Christ.

I'll post more when I can. Thanks for checking in on me once in a while. I know I've been very sporadic lately.

Have a great trip, take lots of pictures, and my prayer is that it will turn out to be more fun than you anticipate. Safe travels to all!

I hope you will have little surprises and blessings on your trip... the unexpected and fun kind.

I am praying too that you have many unexpected blessings along the way. How fun to be able to take pictures of such memorable times from your past.

I'm so jealous that you get to stay at the cottage. It's probably my favorite place in the entire world to be.

I'll deal this time though...because I'll be on the beach in San Diego, which is my second favorite place in the world to be!

Have fun, be safe, and don't let my mom get to crazy!

So excited to hear all about your trip!
I just had my first day of work and it was sooo much fun! Miranda came and took pics so I could blog about it!
Looking forward to Sunday! Shawn & Miranda went to lunch with us today and they all said they are coming Sunday but had not rsvp'd yet. But we're all coming!
